romney up close as he offers his vision of the future, and what he would do as president. but even more startling is the president's complete failure to put forth an agenda for the next four years. >> people want to know they have a strong, steady hand in the oval office and they don't want someone who is reckless. we all remember his "dukes of hazard" tour of international destinations over the summer. >> but tonight's session on foreign policy, which sounded weeks ago like a potential mismatch, an incumbent president responsible for the death of osama bin laden in the ring against a one-term governor with little foreign policy experience now looks like a fairer fight. the president's edge on who would make a better commander in chief has slipped from eight points a month ago to just three. he leads romney 44-41 on that issue in our new poll. overall, the president leads romney on who is best equipped to handle foreign policy by eight points. 46-38. but romney is viewed as a viable alternative. tonight's format will break down this way. moderator, cbs's bob schieffer divided the 90-deb
>> romney will also be campaigning today in iowa, says he's got the momentum on his side. >> we haven't heard an agenda from the president and that's why his campaign is taking on water and our campaign is full speed ahead. >> the romney campaign, though, is distancing itself today from republican senate candidate in indiana, richard mourdock who romney only this week endorsed in a tv ad, the indiana republican set off a firestorm in a debate last night with these comments about rape and abortion. >> i struggled with it myself for a long time but i came to realize life is that gift from god and i think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> and they can just get along. monday's boca debate, "daily show" style. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thi
to become the first president to cast an early vote before heading off to ohio. the challenger, mitt romney, has just wrapped up at his second event today in that most crucial state, the one that's picked every president since 1960. the state that no republican has ever won the white house without. a new "time" magazine poll has the president up five points in ohio by the way, but never mind, earlier today in cincinnati, romney sounded resplendent and utterly triumphant. >> i mean, do you want real big change in this country? well, you're going to get it on november 6th. >> oh, yes, a romney white house would bring change already. and not just the addition of dressage on the north lawn. what would that change look like say on foreign policy, for example? i know, let's ask former secretary of state general colin powell. >> the governor who was speaking on monday night at the debate was saying things that were quite different from what he said earlier. so i'm not quite sure which governor romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy. >> he went on to call romney's foreign policy

are proving that governor mitt romney continues to gain momentum tonight. according to the latest gallup poll among likely voters, romney remains in the lead 50% to 47%. now, historically, no candidate with 50% in a major head-to-head poll this late in the race has lost the election. and when it comes down to the issues, according to a brand new associated press poll, there seems that there is no more gender gap. now, governor romney erased the president's lead over the key voting group women and they are now tied at 47% each. and among independents, governor romney is surging past president obama, according to a brand new abc "the washington post" poll, the governor is 19 points ahead of the president. that's 57 to 38%. and when it comes to who is better equipped to handle the economy, that same poll reveals that more voters believe that governor romney is and that's 52% to 43%. now, on to the all important swing states. and, according to the latest according to the latest fox news poll in virginia governor romney is leading by two points that's 47 to 45 percent. now the growing surge in nan

romney appeared to walk back nearly every foreign policy position he's ever taken and instead, make nice with president obama. right out of the gate moderator bob schieffer teed up a question on perhaps the biggest vulnerability the handling of the attack in benghazi. instead of continuing the criticism romney has kept up since the first 24 hours of the incident he pivoted to mali. >> we see in libya an attack, apparently by i had think we know now by terrorists of some kind against our people there, four people dead, our hearts and minds goes to them. mali has been taken over by al qae qaeda-type videos. >> the pattern would continue on nearly every major issue romney stood with the president. >> we're going to have to recognize that we have to do as the president has done. i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden and going after the leadership in al qaeda. would you have stuck with mubarak? >> no. i believe as the president indicated and said at the time i supported his action there. >> i don't want to have our military involved in syria. >> what you heard governor romney said

on economic policy. mitt romney would tell a crowd of iowa supporters and the world how he would lead the country forward into a new era of prosperity and growth. romney spoke today and yes romney did dust off the same five-point economic plan he has been touting for months. the only thing remotely fresh that romney offered was more cries for change wrapped in a series of unrelenting attacks on president obama who apparently bears sole responsibility for everything that has gone wrong in washington the fast four years. >> this is a year of a choice. americans want to see changes. four years ago people voted for a partisan president and washington is in gridlock because of it president obama reminds us that he inherited a terrible economy. it's not what he inherited but with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americans to endure lengthy poverty. >> eliot: with change in the latest theme for the drive to the white house smith fired back saying, the only ching romney is offering is to take us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in

, florida, site of the third presidential debate in florida. romney war. when i hear mitt romney speak about foreign policy, it's always toughness. when i hear we've got to get tough, i hear war. surrounded as he is by the same people, i feel war presence is even stronger. and in iraq and afghanistan, do we now want another war and a more islamic country. the implication is that we can commit an all out act of war for actually using the word war. we can attack the nuclear sites and they say uncle and that's the end of it. they won't do anything and if only one or two big ones were left, we could still hit new york, an awful lot of people would be wiped out. consequences, understanding the consequences. that's what foreign policy is all about. war is not a policy. it's a declaration of failure. we have no idea what they plan to do and unleash on gaza, forcing others to knockout the rocket sites in both lands killing any number of civilians. and where would we be then? mr. romney's performance in foreign affairs from clumsy trip to europe where he managed to insult our hosts from the shoot fir

like mitt romney and lose four years ago, the campaign never stops. even if you are obama and u.n. four years ago, the campaign never stops. america seems to be less about governing and more about campaigning. everything you do is about the campaign. does that make sense? >> i agree with you. the problem has to do with government. there is very little time to get things done. as soon as these guys are in washington, they are already thinking about the next campaign. the first 100 days -- and now, sometimes, it is the first 50 days before things began to change. no matter how the race turns out in two weeks, you will see people, certainly republicans if the president gets elected, heading to iowa before the end of the year. no joke. the question is when we begin to cover it. usually, out of respect, we try to wait. i would bet by one year from now, you will see lots of stories in iowa and new hampshire. tavis: that scares me. >> they have to get fund- raisers, nail down supporters, and the earlier it begins, the more pressure there is on people to do it. if romney loses, you will see a w
